Including the song "Chajatta" performed by the TVXQ trio, the "SungKyunKwan Scandal" OST not only took first place on offline charts, but also dominated the combined charts, coming out as an overall winner.
Released on the 16th, because the "SungKyunKwan Scandal" OST included the collaboration song "Chajatta" sung by the TVXQ trio, Hero Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, and Xiah Junsu who haven't been active in mainland Korea, and Jaejoong and Junsu's solo songs, the value of the OST album increased twofold.
Although the album was released two weeks after the drama first aired, the offline album rankings have had an evidently strong momentum, having 12 858 copies sold until the 24th.
It is rarely seen of a drama OST being able to make it to the combined charts, but the "SungKyunKwan Scandal" OST earned first place on daily charts 3 out of the 9 days it was released
. On the 16th and 17th when it was first released, it took first place on the daily charts, and although it was placed 2nd all the way through until the 24th, it pushed through to first place. Of course, an OST capable of holding onto the first position is a great achievement.
OST albums are placed first on the annual chart rankings if it's sales reach over 20 000, becoming an album that has a great impact towards the market. Being able to achieve large sales that reach over 10 000 in merely a week, "SungKyunKwan Scandal" has a great probability of beating the "Boys Over Flower" sales of 53 146.
